It is great to see the work that Bob Hunter and Gene Macowiak started in the 1990’s. Great work done in finishing the two bedrooms and the buffet dividers. Poking forward to seeing the car this summer.

Hello Kirk Hello, Yes the Dover is now in great shape. There are a couple of little projects to accomplish when the weather changes. I am pushing hard to use the car in our Pullman train this year. When? Probably labor day weekend and for railfan weekend. It might be operated earlier before just to ride and repair any small defects it has acquired since its last outing. Thanks Roger

I’m really impressed with the wonderful job your volunteers are doing to restore this historic passenger car. Once the restoration is complete, does IRM plan on running this car on the mainline or is this going to be a static display?

Hello Jim We will be operating the Dover this year depending upon its mechanical condition. I hope to use the car in display venue as well as in operations. Labor Day and Railfan weekend of 2021 will be its operational début. Be sure to stop by and view the car in Barn 3 where it will be on display. Thanks Roger

Hello Max The answer is Yes, the Dover will be used along with our other Pullman cars only in special event operations. When not in use it will be displayed in Barn 3 along with our other displayable equipment . Thanks Roger

Hi Ethan The 428 has been worked on recently but the focus now is on the maintenance and repair on the 1630 and the Shay. This Spring we will again work on the engine. Thanks Roger
